We live in New Jersey so we spend a lot of time in New York City. Sometimes we treat ourselves to a weekend in the "city" so we can enjoy dinner and some shows. When we do that, we stay at the Lucerne. We always books suite which has an extra room attached which is great when you have a... More

I had the pleasure to stay at The Lucern on serveral occasions and I have to say that I absolutely love this location. The staff, diverse rooms and amenities are spectacular and it's right in the heart of everything on the Upper West Side. I absolutely recommend it and have started to frequent there regularly. It is an absolute must... More

I stayed at The Lucerne twice during August 2014, each time for a few days. The rooms are very nicely furnished and everything is spotlessly clean. The doormen/porters and front desk staff were incredibly nice and helpful in every way.As a frequent visitor to NY I like to stay away from the tourist bustle in Midtown, so the location was... More

I stayed for one night but my credit card was charged for two nights. Still working to get the difference back. What a headache! The Front Desk Mgr's explanation for this did not make sense. It just seemed they cheated me and were hoping I wouldn't check my credit card statement. In addition, I realized after checking out that I... More

My first time to stay in the city and I will be back to stay at the Lucerne. Our room was perfect and quiet, on the 11th floor. It was cleaned very well each day and the staff was very nice. We walked to several fun places to eat ie. Irving Farm, Good Enough to Eat and Insomnia Cookies! We... More

Upon arrival the staff quickly grabbed bags from the back of the cab. Chris at the front desk was very helpful with dining recommendations. Room was spotless and bed very comfortable. Easy walk to Central Park and Natural History Museum. Convenient to subway. Many dining options. Enjoyed good music across the street at Bourbon St. Cafe and great breakfast at... More

lovely stay as usual at this perfectly located hotel with Nice Matin restaurant next door (and connected by an inner door at breakfast time). I was upgraded to a small suite at no extra cost, which has happened more than once, which made our stay even more pleasing. And my request for a higher floor and away from the elevator... More

The Hotel is very close to good restaurants and friendly people. It Is about three blocks from Central Park and the American Museum of Natural History. The staff was very friendly. It is located in a more suburban area of New York City. It is not near Times Square, or the heavy shopping areas of NYC. There were a few... More

I'm so happy we chose to stay at the Lucerne. The location was perfect for us - away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, but close to lots of great restaurants. staying at the Upper West Side allowed us to feel like we were living in the real New York for a few days, rather than just being tourists....
